    I love the comments made in this article. I agree with the author when she states that people have to look at the solar panels as part of the system on the building and not as something added on.

    Its amazing to think that coal is is responsible for 80% of Chinas energy source. This results in China paying 2 billion a year.

    China definitely needs to take another look at how they control some parts of the country. I agree with Ivan, it's costing the country so much unnecessary financial farm it's crazy. Great read.

Hungry for a group to safely deliver leftover food to charities - 0 views

  •  
    (Sent original article to wrong ENG 102 group) Ever thought as a college student you could make a difference? Well a group of Students from Pomona's College started to try to save food from being tossed out. They would package it and send it to a shelter to help those in need. 3.7 million adults struggle to put food on the table, but 1.5 million tons of food get wasted and thrown away. Now there is something wrong with that. Donating food to the need has become a solution, but what if your willingness to help out gets turned down? One person turned donation food donations because the fear of rotten food and health code. How are we suppose to help food waste if others are squashing our solutions?

    This article explains a group of people that take food from stores that is getting thrown away and hand it out to the hunger. I find this very important because instead of the food being wasted someone is taking a stand and giving to the need instead of the dump. So we are killing two birds with one stone in this process.
